    She's gorgeous, and I love all the fabrics in her outfit.

    • Said in new interview that he has found it 'terribly sad' being apart from family
    • Added that Facetime 'it isn't the same' and he would like 'to give people a hug'

    By REBECCA ENGLISH ROYAL CORRESPONDENT FOR THE DAILY MAIL and HARRIET JOHNSTON FOR MAILONLINE
    PUBLISHED: 21:07, 4 June 2020 | UPDATED: 01:27, 5 June 2020

    Prince Charles has spoken movingly about missing his grandchildren during lockdown as he said he is 'terribly sad' he hasn't been able to see his family in person in months.
    The Prince of Wales, 71, opened up about the difficulties of lockdown from his Aberdeenshire home of Birkhall in a new interview with Sky News for their series After The Pandemic: Our New World, which aired tonight.
    The heir to the throne revealed how much he wants to give family members a hug, and mentioned missing Prince Philip, 98, as well as his grandchildren, Prince William's children Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, Prince Louis, two and Prince Harry's son Archie, one.
    Asked how he had found it being 'disconnected' from his family, he explained: 'Well it's terribly sad, let alone one's friends.

    Prince Charles, 71, has opened up about missing his family during lockdown and admitted FaceTiming 'isn't the same' because 'you really want to give people a hug'

    'But fortunately at least you can speak to them on telephones and occasionally do this sort of thing. But it isn't the same, is it? You really want to give people a hug.'
    'I do totally understand so many people's frustrations, difficulties, grief and anguish.'

    He and the Duke of Edinburgh, who turns 99 next week, have been 500 miles apart during the crisis, with the prince at Birkhall in Scotland and his father with the Queen at Windsor Castle.
    Prince William and his children are currently living in Norfolk, while Prince Harry and his son Archie, one, have spent lockdown in Los Angeles.

    Prince Charles admitted he was missing his grandchildren during the coronavirus lockdown. Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, are currently isolating at Anmer Hall in Norfolk

    In an unusually personal interview to launch his post-pandemic green initiative, the prince discussed how difficult the lockdown has been for all families.
    'I haven't seen my father for a long time,' he said. 'He's going to be 99 next week, so yes... or my grandchildren or anything.
    'I've been doing the Facetime, which is all very well but...'
    He said he hopes families can be reunited soon. 'I do hope so,' he added. 'I'm just trying to do my best to find and help and encourage ways to enable people to go on doing that, but in a way that doesn't wreck everything at the same time around us.'

    Meanwhile Prince Harry, 35, Meghan Markle, 38, and their son Archie, one, have been isolating in Los Angeles during the pandemic

    He said the last two months had been 'an unbelievably testing and challenging time', adding: 'I know that so many people have had the agony of losing their loved ones and the bewilderment and anxiety that surrounds everything.
    'We've seen at the same time people being quite remarkable and wonderful people in the National Health Service and all the other key workers who kept everything going.'
    The royal also touched on his own experience with COVID-19 during the crisis, telling royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills: 'I was lucky in my case and got away with it quite lightly. But I've had it, and I can so understand what other people have gone through.'
    Prince Charles added: 'I feel particularly for those who have lost their loved ones and have been unable to be with them at the time. That to me is the most ghastly thing.'

    Prince Charles also revealed he hasn't seen his father Prince Philip in 'a long time' during the interview

    He added: 'But in order to prevent this happening to so many more people, I'm so determined to find a way out of this.'
    Prince Charles was diagnosed as having Covid-19 following a test on the NHS in Aberdeenshire in March of this year.
    Fortunately, he only suffered what were described as 'mild' symptoms and carried on working throughout.
    Royal sources said the prince was in 'good health' throughout his illness and his self-isolation lasted seven days 'in accordance with government and medical guidelines'.

    Prince Charles said it was 'terribly sad' to only be able to see family members over FaceTime (pictured, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at Anmer Hall in March)

    Despite the mild nature of his brush with the virus, Prince Charles revealed that it has helped him empathise with others throughout the pandemic.
    Prince Charles went on to explain that the crisis could offer a moment of opportunity for the environment.
    He explained: 'People have begun to realise that we have to put nature back at the centre of everything we do and put it at the centre of our economy.
    'Before this nature has just been pushed to the peripheries, we've exploited and dug up and cut down everything as if there was no tomorrow, as if it doesn't matter.'
    Prince Charles insists we need 'nature at the centre of economy

    Prince Charles, who has spent lockdown at his Aberdeenshire home of Birkhall with Camilla, 72, said he felt 'ghastly' for those who couldn't be with loved-ones as they died from the disease

    The Prince of Wales went on to say that without learning from this pandemic, there may be more to come from in the future, commenting: 'The more we erode the natural world, the more we destroy biodiversity, the more we expose ourselves to this kind of danger.
    'We've had these other disasters with SARS and EBOLA and goodness knows what else, all of these things are related to the loss of biodiversity.
    'So, we have to find a way this time to put nature back at the centre.

    It comes as the Prince of Wales launched the Great Reset Project as he urged businesses to seize the 'golden opportunity' of the coronavirus pandemic to rebuild in a sustainable and green way

    'We should have been treating the planet as if it was a patient long ago. No self-respecting doctor would ever have let the situation, if the planet is a patient, reach this stage before making an intervention.
    'It's only catastrophes which concentrate the mind, which means, that for once, there might be some real impetus to tackle all these things that have been pushed to one side because everyone said, 'oh it's irrelevant'. But these are crucial things.'
    Speaking about his experience with the disease, he said it had reinforced his belief in the causes he champions, saying: 'It makes me even more determined to push and shout and prod.'

    The royal has encouraged industries to relaunch in a sustainable way and 'reset' in a voiceover for a short film which accompanied the launch of the project

    It comes as the Prince of Wales urged businesses to seize the 'golden opportunity' of the coronavirus pandemic to rebuild in a sustainable and green way as he launched The Great Reset Project.
    Prince Charles unveiled the initiative yesterday, which is designed to ensure businesses 'build back better' as they begin to recover from the crisis.
    The prince, who has been championing environmental causes for decades, stressed the need not to miss the chance for a green recovery and a more sustainable future, urging people to 'think big and act now'

    I also think Queen Jetsun looks gorgeous. I'm not sure I've ever seen her before. She looks so serene.

    Queen Maxima is really growing on me. She hasn't stopped during covid-19. The Corona beer was a little strange and silly. Maybe she thought it was funny.

    And after really despising Charles for a long time, I really like him now. He seems much more human. But that last pic of him .... his face and hands are almost purple red. What illnesses cause that?

    I think Charles has mellowed with age, he is also happily married for 15 years to the woman he initially wanted to marry. I think this pandemic has been really difficult on seniors and grandparents who are used to spending time with their grandkids. They are losing a valuable connection with their grandchildren and it's sad, even if it is being done to protect them.

    Prince George just grew in his adult front teeth which always causes kids to look weird and goofy with those new big chompers.

    Had to go back and look because I didn't notice the first time. He's really growing. I wonder if he will get braces.

    My best friend just saw her grandkids for the first time last weekend. Every day, she would tell me in some way how much she missed her "kids". And she was really hurting. She usually sees them once a week or so.
